Mini MBA

Why follow the mini MBA?

This program is ideal if you don’t want to or can’t follow a complete Masters course. The Mini MBA is the perfect program to develop yourself quickly, (cost) efficiently and effectively and if you want to broaden or update your knowledge.

For some managers and professionals, it’s not always key due to their knowledge and experience to follow a Master in full depth. Or perhaps the first step to a full Master is currently not interesting for another reason. That is why this specific Mini MBA program has been set up.

Why this program?

      are treated and discussed in one day;
    • The Mini MBA offers a broad basic knowledge of all modules from the full MBA in a few weeks;
    • This course is a good fit if you are looking for a foundation without deepening a full master or if you are considering taking the full master at a later stage.
    • In those areas where the student has specific interest or needs additional training we offer more extensive masterclasses of the subject in question;
    • This program offers the student a chance to learn with, and from, other international students in different type of backgrounds and workenviroments.
